What Happens to our Waste? Kate Valley Landfill Tour

We've had requests to put on a second visit to Hurunui’s Kate Valley Landfill, as our October one filled up fast!

As well as seeing how this leading-edge facility manages waste, you’ll also learn about safety and conservation measures to minimise environmental impacts, including what happens to leachate and gas, and how water is managed.

The site is 1,000 hectares, of which 37 hectares will be used in landfilling. A further 410 hectares, Tirimoana Bush, is under a conservation covenant and is open to the public.

Be in quickly to register: Contact: or 03 314 3406.

If not coming via Amberley, it will be possible to join the bus at Waipara. The tour lasts about 90 mins. Contribution: 2 TimeBank Hurunui credits or $10 donation appreciated, plus pp bus fare $5
